The room is a bit old, but the views from the room is nice. The breakfast is also good, and the pool area is nice to sit and have a drink in the end of the day after many drinks in the beach! I love the location, super close to the restaurants and the beach. They also give you access... More

Studio was great, quite high up the hill so got a superb view of the sea and nearby islands. Very clean, excellent reception staff, and bar staff. Nice breakfast, dinners in poolside restaurant high quality. Very quiet area at night so not good if looking for lively time. Wifi in reception.

This fantastic hotel is in Parc de la Baie Orientale (gated community) on the French side of the island. It is a 5 minute walk to Orient beach and within walking distance to 5-6 great restaurants at "La Place" (Le Piment is the best) as well as a small grocery store. This is more of a family resort I think... More

Ok..if you are looking for party all night bars, touristy stuff and chain restaurants, this hotel and side of the island are not for you. But, if you are like me and just want to relax, hit a beach, and enjoy other people who want the same, I would recommend this hotel very highly. Just about a five minuet walk... More

Found this accommodation on a last minute travel deal in late April. We weren't sure what we could expect since few pictures of the room were posted. We were told we had a lower level studio room, which, we presumed would be tiny. We were delightfully surprised to find a huge open space, comfortable king size bed, (surrounded by mosquito... More

My wife and I visited St. Martin May 31 - Jun 7. We rented a car at the airport so that we could tour the island at our leisure. We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the rooms at La Plantation (the buildings were like duplex bungalows). Our parking spot was directly in front of the room and everything... More

Location is perfect for this hotel, 2 blocks up from the beach and about 5 minute walk to a great few restaurants. The rooms are a very good size and our balcony had great ocean views. The check-in was smooth and everyone was friendly. The only negative is the rooms are a little dated. The servers are the restaurant were... More

The hotel is a block from the entrance to Orient Village off the main road to Grand Case near Where we are staying at the residence shamrock. Noticed the sign by the road offering a breakfast buffet.

Went back again for two weeks.Will be back again next year. Laid back retreat was my previous review of this hotel. Not much changed. I can add a few tips though. This hotel is more like renting a villa or cottage than a traditional north american style hotel or highrise. Quiet and privacy on your own patio with great views... More
